The amount of money paid to a provider by an exposure-based payment system to provide certain health care services to any Managed Care Health Provider members. The payment does not vary on the basis of the number or type of services actually rendered. The verb “to capitate” is used to indicate the act of entering into such an arrangement. Capitation is also sometimes used to mean the total medical cost or premium per enrollee, though it is not used in this manner in this document.
